Sketch and scrap May challenge

The sketch for Sketch and scrap is this one.

Firstly I flipped my sketch.

Using my map Kraft paper from Counterfeit Kit and another one with passport stamps all over it, I formed my background.
Instead of a strip of paper going across I used 2 ribbons and 2 washi tapes.
Next I added sequins randomly across the page.
I've hand written my journaling but also used some Tiny word stickers from MME.

If you think this looks a busy layout, it is.
 That is the way patterns were at Versailles, pattern overload!
